A largo gathering of citizens of all
denominations met at the Citv Hall,
Snndon, on Tuesday evening, to hold a
pocial in honor of tho Rev. \V\ G.

A very pleasing  program was arranged, which was a- follows:

The prevailing dangerous apathy on
the part of the people of British Columbia will nssist in a measure tha aboliiion
of tho head tax on Chinese unle.-s
strong opposition is forthcoming speedily as an antidote to the petition now
being circulated hy lhe women of the
province with that object in view*. It
is all very w<-U to console ourselves with
the thought that- petitions are seldom
successful. They might not be successful i( promulgated in a small way, hut
it is absolutely certain that the legislature would he bound to consider a
mo'.stcr petition brought into the
House, and hence the dinger exia'a of
tlie now prohibitive head lax being repealed.-'We need only cite tho recent
enactment of the Sunday Observance
Bill to make our point the better under
stood. The Lord's Pay Alliance won
their memorable battle against Corporations, cliiiues, lobbyists and the arrayed opposition of the land simply ihr ugh
the medium of a gigantic petition.
Hundreds of 1 sts bearing thousands
upon thousands of signatures were uent
to tho I'roinior, and when they were
all in, a seven foot pile of petitions wnB
placed on the floor of the Commons
in front of the gubernatorial chair, Tho
demand was so imperative that members
had to to support the Bill or take
medicine from their constituents.
But here is somethingdiffeient. The
average Britisli Columbian dcBires that
tho Chinese tax remain imposed, and
yet his apathy in the matter at this
juncture will prove his own undoing
unless he speedily supplies an antidote
to the petition now going the rounds
which owes its origin to a syndicate of
Chinese employment contractors.
What the residents of the lake towns
should do, is to combine to take a fall
out of the p e.-ent depression. We can
with all truth wri'e there is not a more
favored, God-kissed section of the

the world knows nothing of it. The

Here is a unique incident the accuracy
of which is vouched for by Mr. S. J.
A few weeks ago Mrs. Towgood 1, st
a pearl from a necklet she w.is wearing.
A search high aiid low for the valuable
gem was unsuccessful, and thus ended
chapter one.
The second chapter discovers the
maid scattering ashes to the fowls for
them to exercise their scratching proclivities among. The only thing missing from the picture being the swine to
catch the pearl which was cast among
the ashes.
The final chapter opens with a breakfast scene. (Now you begin to Catch on ;

and , oh, well    now you have it as

It is naturally concluded that the
pearl waa swept up and thrown with
the ashes to the hens, and then gobbled
up by tho layer of tlie egg no.v under

and not go to the gizzard we cannot

fContinued from last week)
t'n tho west side of the tunnel at this
point a drift was pushed in 10 feet on a
tight fissure. The limestone in this
neighborhood is somewhat massive and
dark colored, while eighteen feet further in along the tunnel a very distinct
open fissure crosses, on the wallB of
which about an inch of caloite is found..
Tho space between the ciilcite on the
walls varies from one half lo two inches.
It is quite probablo that this is a post^
mineralization fissure. There ia no
change from this point until the main
Assure of the mine is intersected at 1180
feet from the tunnel portal, along which
the tunnel turns to the east and connects with the raise which passes up
���through the big ore chimney now
stored with broken ore, as previously
referred to. This main fissure has been
opened for about 15 feer eaat into the
slate footwall, on which tho raise waa
started, and, so far as I can determine,
it closely follows this slate footwall until the winze is reached. In the face of
tho east cross-cut in tho slato footwall
Denver j on No. 2, the fis*ure appears smnll and
tight, anh would scarcely he recognised
as the main fissure which passes ro
persistently through the sl.ilcs on tho
Safety tunnel horizon, In the westerly direction, however, the fissure is very
strong and lias been followed for a distance of 160 feet, for much of the way
through calcareous Blatc and bands of
impure limestone, ending in the typical
black Slocan elates, where the fissure is
again practically closed. Ore occurs for
a considerable distance between the
points indicated, but to be more precise, at the foot of the main raise on
the footwall there is three feet of very
fair blende next the fissure, with 5 feet
of rather light colored pyrites, associated with a little blende, followed by
strong developments of cnlcite which
continue southerly in the limestone to
the next fissure. A third parallel fissure, small and tight, occurs at the
bend of the level, along which no particular mineralization can be noted.
Passing westerly along the main fissure, tbe No. 3 tunnel was driven
through the fissure and extended on its
last course -10 feet beyond it, ending in
black Slocan slates, A raise was also
put up in (ho main fissure, at this place,
but was in no condition for examination. The oro in the fissure, however,
gives the same section as at the foot
wall raise, 3 feet of blende and about
5 feet of mixed pyrites and blende.
The pyrites appears rather massive,
nnd some of it. looks like pyrrbotite, but
on the whole, it Would make good concentrating ore. Continuing westward
along the main Assure, toward the hanging wall of the limestone zone, tho drift
passes mostly through slate from the
point of intersection of the main tunnel
lo the winze, though iri this slate there
are a few small beds of impure limestone. The left hand side of the drift
is deeply marked with striae, showing movement toward tho hanging wall
at about 40 degrees dip. Limestone
again occurs at tne winze for a width
of 15 feet, and Iri it there Is a very fair
development of pyrites, zinc blende and
galena, the blende being more abuudant
towards the hanging, and indeed extends
back along tho northern side of the drift
for 14 ft. from the winze, the blende be-
ingof the usnal high-grade character of
tho Lucky Jim ore. This winze has not
been unwatered siuco Mr. Hughes purchased the property, but he informed
mo the drift inside of the winze was
full uf good concentrating ore when he
took hold of the property and ho be-
lbves this ore wns taken out of the
winze, though it is just as likely to have
been obtained from the raise. The ore
(he staled) contained considerable gal-
tna and was a first class concentrating
ore. Beyond tho winzo the drift is entirely in slato, and  ends as  previously
noted, in dark Slocan slates, softer considerably than those passed through in
other portions of the tunnel. Returning to the main raUc on the foot wall,
it will be noted that the level after passing through lhe sheeted zone, previously described, makes a'southerly bend
and enters the slato. Passing onward
for considerable distance, the level
was very hurriedly examined and the
face found to he in Blato, but near the
face some impure limestone occurs.
A westerly cross cut passes through this
hand in the slate, and one to the cast
also ends in slate. One or two croos
li-sures occur in this drift, but no mineralization of moment was observed.
From one fissure quite a stream of water was issuing, giving a black deposit,
probably manganiferous.
While this drift south of tho main
fissure was not carefully examined, yet
the irregular occurence of the limestone
and the fact that No. 2 tunnel after intersecting tho main fissure, passed
through the limestone and into the
slate, that between this point and the
winze in the main fissure another alate
maasexiula, it becomes evident that the
limestone ia of irregular occurence and
ia probably best -understood, in part at
least, as an accretion or segregation of
limestone in the 6lates, the lurcer mass
following closely one particular stratum
of slate now represented as lhe footwall;
in this limestone segregation mineral
has been deposited in tho main fis-ures
of certain sheeted zones. The strike of
the limestone zone'at the surface can
be followed for about 250 feet, when it
passes under wash and debiis and is
lost from sight, but again crops on the
hill almost opposite tho portal of No. 2
tunnel east. Here an open cut whb
made and considerable lead and zinc
ore shipped therefrom. In the sides of
thia open cut three well pronounced fis
sures are observable, each one well mill

��� A New Process of
|ne Smelting.
Will Revolutionize Existing
System and Be Savior
Of Our Zinc industry.
Special to the Review.
In recent advices from the old coun��-
try, wo have received details of a new
process of zinc smelting, Patent No.
24090, 1908. It possesses the great ad*
vantage over the ordinary process in tbe
fact that metallic zinc is recovered direct from sulphide ores, such aa we hava
in this country.
The process conajsts of heating a mixture of hlendo with metallic iron at a
temperature of 1000�� in an electric furnace, whereby the iron combines witli
the sulphur of the blende and pure zinc
is distilled off in the usual way.
This process has so many advantnges
over the present one in uso, that all
those interested in the zinc, industry of
B. 0. should at once test its practicability.
Amongst its advantages are the following :
1. It is continuous in action, the
ordinary method in use is not so.
2. It i�� specially adapted to Slocan
zinc ores carrying silver, as tho silver is
easily recovered from the iron matte by
smelling. The residues from the ordinary process are not amenable to smelting
for reovery of silver contents, except
Where very rich.
II. The process U unaffected by tho
presence of iron in the zinc. In tho
ordinary process iron is so objeo.tionablo
ihat it is penalized when it exceeds a
certain amount. The pu*s-*nceof iron
in the Slocan ores is tho chief cause of
poor prices, and all attempts to remove
this have been, practically speaking,
unsuccessful in the past. This forms,
then, the moot important, and to uo tho
most pleasiig feature of the procesp.
4. The plant is easy to work, is capable of heing set up in small units, and
costs n.ui'li less than that in ordinary
use. The practicability ol the process in
B.C. depends upon the price of iron.
In the Slocan we are loo far removed
from coal and iron to apply it at our
mines. On lhe coast, however, where
iron can be made and coal and water
power are easily obtainable, thore is
every reason to believe that suited as
this process is to Slocan ores, it would
supersede the ordinary method with its
expensive outfit and high costs oi working.	
Local and General.
Notice ia hereby given that at the
expiration ol thirty days I intend to
apply to the Board of License Commissioners of tho Slocan License District
for a transfer of my Retail Liquor
License held by me for the Rosebery
Hotel at Rosebery, B.C. to M.
A meeting of the Board of License
Commissioners will he held to consider
such transfer at the Court House, New
Denver, on Saturday, the thirteenth

were his plans completed for the following summer. Mr. Hughes thought that

in tn* meantime Beverly was conducted to the home of the Countess
ltallowltz. Her meeting wltb tbe
princess was most affectionate. Tbere
were tears, laughter and kisses. Tbe
whole atmosphere of the place suggested romance to tbe eager American
girl. Downstairs were tbe royal
guards. In the halls were attendants.
All about were maidservants and obsequious lackeys, crowding tbe home
of tbe kindly countess. At last, comfortable and free from tbe dust of
travel, the two friends sat down to a
dainty meal.
"Ob, I am so delighted," murmured
Beverly for the hundredth time.
"I'm appalled wbeu I think of tbe
dangers you Incurred in comlug to me.
No one but a very foolish American
girl could bave undertaken such a trip
as this. Dear me, Beverly, I should
have died If anything dreadful bad
happened to you. Why did you do It?"
questioned tbe princess. Aud then they
laughed JoyouBly.
"And you went all the way to St.
Petersburg to meet me, yon dear, dear
Yetive!" cried Beverly so warmly that
the attentive servant forgot his mask
cf reverence.
"Wasn't It ridiculous of me? I know
Oren would bave forbidden it if he bad
been in Edelweiss when I started.
And, more shame to me, the poor fellow Is doubtless at the conference wltb
Dawsbergen, utterly Ignorant of my
escapade. You should have beard tbe
ministry���er���ah"��� And the princess
paused for an English word.
"Kick?" Beverly supplied.
"Yes. They objected violently. And,
do you know, I was Anally compelled
to issue a private edict to restrain
them from sending an appeal to Grenfall away off tbere on the frontier.
Whether or no, my uncle insisted that
he should be brought home, a three
days' journey, in order that he might
keep me from going to St Petersburg.
Of course they could not disobey my
���diet, and so poor Gren Is none the
wiser, unless he has returned from tbe
conference. If he has, I am sure he is
���n tbe way to Ganlook at this very
"What a whimsical ruler yon are!"
cried Beverly. "Upsetting everything
sensible just to rush off hundreds of
miles to meet me! And Axphaln is
trying to capture you tool Goodness,
you must love me!"
"Oh, but I did bave a trifling affair
cf state to lay before the czar, my
dear! Tomorrow we shall be safe and
sound in tbe castle, and it will all be
very much worth while. You see, Beverly, dear, even princesses enjoy a diversion now and then. One wouldn't
think anything of this adventure in the
United States; it is the environment
that makes It noticeable. Besides, you
traveled as a princess. How did you
like it?"
And then the conversation related
particularly to tbe advantages of royalty as viewed from one side and the
disadvantages as regarded from another. For a long time Beverly had
been woudering how she should proceed in the effort to secure absolute
clemency for Baldos. As yet she had
said nothing to Yetive of her promise
to bim, made while she was a princess.
"At nny rate, I'm sure the goat hunters would not have been so faithful
and true If they bad not believed me to
be a princess," said Beverly, paving
the way. "You haven't a man in your
kingdom wbo could be more chivalrous than Baldos."
"If he is tbat kind of a man, he
jwould treat any woman as gently."
"You should have heard bim call me
'your highness,' " cried Beverly. "He
will loathe me If he ever learns tbat I
deceived hlm."
"Ob, I think ho deceived himself,"
spoke Yetive easily. "Besides, you
look as much like a princess as I."
"There la something I want to speak
very seriously about to you, Yetive,"
���aid Beverly, makiug ready for tbe
cast. "Vou Bee, he did not want to
cuter Ganlook with me, but I insisted.
He had been so brave and gallant, and
he was suffering so Intensely. It would
bave been criminal iu me to leave bim
out there In the wilderness, wouldn't
"It would have beeu heartless."
"So I Just made bim come along.
Tbut was right, wasn't It? That's what
you would have doue, no matter who
be was or what his objections might
have been. Well, you see, It's this
way, Yetive: Ho is some sort of a fugitive���not a criminal, you know, but
Just some one they are hunting for, I
don't know why. He wouldn't tell me.
That was perfectly right If he felt tbat
.way, wasn't It?"
"And be bad fought a lion In your
defense," supplemented Yetive, with a
schoolgirl's ardor.
"And I bad shot him in the arm,
too," added Beverly. "So of course I
Just had to be reasonable. In order te
Induce bim to come with me to a hospital I was obliged to guarantee perfect safety te him. His men went
back to tbe bills, all except old Fran*
tbe driver. Now, tbe trouble Is this,
Yetive: I am not the princess, and I
cannot redeem a single promise I
made to him. He is helpless, and If
anything goes wrong with bim he will
bate me forever."
"No; IH will hate me, for I am the
princess, and he Is none the wiser."
"But be will be told that his princess was Beverly Calhouu, a supposedly nice American girl. Don't you see
bow awkward it will he for me? Now,
Yetive, darling, what I wish you to do
is to write a note, order or edict or
whatever It Is to Baron Dangloss, commanding hlm to treat Huldos as a patient and not as a prisoner, and that
when he is fully recovered he Is to
have the privilege of leaving Ganlook
.without reservation."
1 "But he, may. be a desDerata. offend
er bgainst tbe state, Beverly," plaintively protested Yetive. "If we only
knew what he Is charged with!"
"I'm afraid It's something dreadfully
serious," admitted Beverly gloomily.
"He doesn't look like the sort of man
who would engage in a petty undertaking. I'll tell you bis story, just as
he told It to mc," and she repeated tbe
meager confessions of Baldos,
"I see no reason why we should hesitate," said tho princess. "By bis own
stutement be Is not a desperste criminal. You did quite right In promising
bim protection, deir. ind I sball bus-
taln you. Do you want to play the
princess to Bnldos a little longer?"
"I should love It," cried Beverly, her
eyes sparkling.
"Then I shall write the order to Dangloss at once. Oh, doar, I have forgotten, I have no official seal here."
"Couldn't you seal It wltb your ring?"
suggested Beverly. "Ob, I have It!
Send for Huron Dungloss aud have him
Witness your signature. He can't get
awiiy from that, yen see, and after we
reach Edelweiss you can fix up a regular edict, seal and all," cried tbe resourceful American girl.
Ink end paper were sent for, and tbe
two conspirators lent their wisdom to
tbe task of preparing an order for the
salvation of Baldos, tbe fugitive. The
order read:
To   Baron  Jasto  Dung-loss,   Commanding
the civic and Military Folic* of Orau-
You are hereby Informed that Daldoa,
the man who entered the city with Miss
Calhoun, Is not to be regarded as a prisoner now or hereafter. He Is to be given
capable medical and surgical attention
until fully recovered, when he la to be
allowed to so his way In peace unquestioned.
Also he is to be provided with suitable
wearing apparel and made comfortable In
every way.
Also the members of hla party, now In
the hills (whose names are unknown to
me), are to be accorded every protection.
Franz, the driver, ia to have his freedom
If he desires It.
And from this edict there la no recourse
until ita abatement by royal decree.
"Tbere," said the princess, affixing
her" signature. "I think that will be
sufficient." Then she rang for a servant. "Send to Baron Dangloss, and
usk him to come here at once."
Fifteen minutes later the chief of
police stood in the presence of tbe eager
young Interpreters of Justice.
"I want you to witness my signature,
Baron Dangloss," said the princess
after the greetings.
"Gladly," Bald the officer.
"Well, here Is where I signed," said
Yetive, handing bim the paper. "I
don't have to write my name over
again, do I?"
"Not at all," said the baron gallantly. And he boldly signed bis name as
a witness.
"They wouldn't do that In the United States," murmured Beverly, who
knew something about red tape at
"It Is a command to you, baron,"
said Yetive, handing bim tbe document
with a rare smile. He read It through
slowly. Then he bit bis lip and coughed. "What Is the matter, baron?" asked Yetive, still smiling.
"A transitory emotion, your hlgbness,
tbat Is aii." said he, but bis band trembled as he folded tbe paper.
,��-j. IRIGIIT and early the next morn-
Lsl 1  Ing the party was ready for the
111 last of the Journey to Edel-
\ weiss. Less tban twenty miles
separated Ganlook from tbe capital,
and tbe road was In excellent condition. Beverly Calhoun, tired and contented, bad slept soundly until aroused
by tbe princess herself. Their rooms
adjoined each other, and when Yetive,
shortly after daybreak, stole Into the
American girl's chamber Beverly was
sleeping so sweetly that the Intruder
would have retreated had It not been
for tbe boisterous shouts of stable
boys In the courtyard below the windows. Sbe burrled to a window and
looked out upon tbe gray cloaked morning. Postilions and stable boys were
congregated near tbe gates, tormenting a ragged old man wbo stood with
his back against one of tbe huge postB.
In some curiosity, sbe called Beverly
from ber slumbers, urging the sleepy
ono to hasten to the window.
"Is this one of your friends from the
wilderness?" sbe asked.
"It's Franz!" cried Beverly, rubbing
her pretty eyes. Then she became thoroughly awake. "What are tbey doing
to bim? Wbo are those ruffians?" she
demanded indignantly,
"They are my servants and"���
"Shame on them! Tbe wretches!
What has old Franz done that tbey
should��� Call to them; tell 'em you'll
cut their beads off If tbey don't stop.
He's a dear old fellow In spite of bis
rags, and he"���
The window sash flew open, and the
tormentors In the court below were astonished by the sound of a woman's
voice coming, as it were, from the
clouds. A dozen pairs of eyes were
turned upward; tbe commotion ended
suddenly. In the window above stood
two graceful, whit* robed figures, The
sun, stiii rnr below the rfdge of mountains, bad uot yet robbed the morning
I of the gray, dewy shadows that belong
1 to 6 o'clock.
"What are you doing to that poor old
man?" cried Yetive, and It was th*
first time any of them had seen anger
iu the princess' face. They slunk back
in dismay. "Let him ulone! You,
Gartz, see that he has food uud drink,
uud without delay. Report to me later
ou, sir, and explain, if you can, why
you have conducted yourselves In so
unbecoming a manner." Then the window was closed, und the princess
found herself lu the warm arms of her
"I couldn't understand a word you
said, Yetive, but I knew you were
glvlug it to them hot and heavy. Did
you see bow nicely old From bowed to
you? Goodness. Lis bead aTmos" touched the ground!"
"He was bowing to you, Beverly.
You forgot that you are tbe princess to
"Isn't tbat funny? I bad quite forgotten It. The poor old goose!"
Later, when the coaches and escort
were drawn up In front of the Rallo-
witz palace ready for the start, the
princess called tbe chief postilion,
Uartz, to tbe step of ber coach.
"What was the meaning of the disturbance I witnessed this morning?"
sbe demanded.
Gartz bung his bead. "We thought
the man was crazy, your highness. He
had been telling us such monstrous
lies," he mumbled.
"Are you sure they were lies?"
"Oh, quite sure, your highness. They
were laughable. He said, for one
thing, tbat It was he wbo drove your
highness' coach into Ganlook last evening, when everybody knows that I hnd
full charge of the coach aud horses."
"You are very much mistaken,
Gartz," she said distinctly. He blinked his eyes.
"Your highness," he gasped, "you
surely remember"���
"Enough, sir. Franz drove the princess Into Ganlook last night. He snys
so himself, does he uot?"
"Yes, your highness," murmured
poor Gartz,
"What more did be say to you?"
"He said be bad come from his master, who Is in the hospital, to Inquire
after your health nud to bear his thanks
for the kindnesses you have secured
for bim. He says his master Is faring
well and Is satisfied to remain where
be Is. Also, he suld that bis muster
was sending him back Into the mountains to assure his friends thut he is
safe and to bear a certuln message of
cheer to tbem, sent forth by the princess. It was all so foolish and crazy,
your hlgbness, tbat we could but gibe
and laugb at tbe poor creature."
"It Is you wbo bave been foolish, sir.
Send the old man to me."
"He has gone, your highness," la
frightened tones.
"Bo much the better," said the princess, dismissing him with a wave of
th* hand. Gartz went away In a date,
and for days he took every opportunity
to look for other signs of mental disorder In the conduct of his mistress, at
the same tlin* Indulging in speculation
as to bis own soundness of mind.
Ganlook's population lined tbe chief
thoroughfare, awaiting the departure
of the princess, although th* hour was
early. Beverly peered forth curiously
as tbe coach moved off. The quaint,
half oriental costumes of the townspeople, the odd little children, th*
bright colors, tbe perfect love and reverence tbat shon* in tbe faces of the
multitude Impressed ber deeply. She
was never to forget tbat picturesque

Penalty of Politeness.
The "tradesman" has his troubles as
well as his next door neighbor, tbe
"business man." One day last week a
wholesale fish dealer In Fulton market
was approached by a fashionably
dressed woman, who, after asking tbe
price, decided to buy a pound of
smelts. Although It was not customary to cater to retail trade, to be congenial he decided to oblige ber.
"I would like to have them cleaned,
If you please," she said.
The Ashman cleaned them.
"Oh, yes," the woman considerately
remarked after looking them over,
"will you kindly take all tbe bones
"Certainly," said the man. But he
said things to himself as he went behind the Icebox and extracted the
After fifteen minutes' labor he wrapped the smelts in a neat parcel, which
be handed the woman.
"I am so much obliged to you," she
said. "You see, my cat absolutely refuses to eat fish if they are bony."
As the fashionably gowned woman
walked out the Ashman said some more
things.���New York Press.

In a letter to Charles Dickens, Wilkie

lloued bim much trouble. Eventually,

The French Idea.
The Frenchman of the middle class
lacrlflces everything In order to obtain
tor his children some official position
or other, a mean one, perhaps, but a
���ure one, leading after thirty years of
penury to a pension verging on destitution. This Is one aspect of tbe decay
of the French race. It Is easy to understand that two races are not evenly
armed for tbe struggle for life If one
be made up of aspirants to official poll tion and the other of Individuals pos-
lesslng Initiative, daring and energy.
For this reason do Latin races decline,
while Anglo-Saxon races grow and

In the south seas and In various

"Who pays ior the advertising oi
merchants and other business ?" asks
the North Adams, Mass., Herald, and
then proceeds to sny, hy way of answering its own query:
"Not the advertiser, ior the cost is
returned to him fourfold in Increased
profits, Not the purchaser, for he
buys cheaper from the advertiser, and
mis a better assortment and fresher
goods to select from. Who, then,
really,  pays for tlie advertising ?
"Tlie non-advertiser, of course. A
just proportion of the money he loses
hy his lack of initiative or enterprise
tinils its way to the printer, to advance the cost of education nnd the
interests of the community. If you
have never looked at it in this light,
it's worth  thinking about.
"If $10 worth ol advertising would
bring $20 additional profits you would
always hnve your advertising free

Ana the Intimate Relation of Science
to Society.
Ibsen, my great compatriot, has In
one of h'a works formulated the para
dox that the man Is strongest who
stands most alone. Tbere Is certainly
some truth In this���nay, there is much
truth In It so far as science Is concerned. The man who In the search
for truth goes his way Independently
of other men and of other considerations is certainly the man who Is apt
to find the greatest and most valuable
truth. On tbe other baud, it Is also
true that science more than most othei
things In life depends on co-operation,
on the help of one's fellow beings, and
this becomes more and more true every
day. Many people are apt to forget
what science actually is and what thej
owe to science, for It Is through eel
ence that modern society actually ex
lsts, and tbe development of soe'ety ai
It Is today would be impossible If set
ence were eliminated. Humanity It
growing; but, If science and the meant
created by science are not growing, lui
inanity will have to look forward to (
very miserable future. Therefore tbi
nation tbat wishes to be cared foi
must support science and those win
carry on scientific work. Science wll
live her own life und has done so eve:
since tbe days when Prometheus maih
his fatal expedition to the gods ant
stole the fire which Is more or lesi
burning In every one of us and canno
be extinguished. There Is somethlni

ence. Generation after generation dis
appears. Tbe Individual is nothln**. bu

My brother promptly replied:

Artists as Siarn Painters.
It Is surprising how many noted Eng
llsb artists began life by painting Inn
signs. Among them were Morland, David Cox, Herring and Sir William
Beechey. Mllluis painted a George and
Dragon sign for the George Inn, Hayes
common. Another George and Dragon,
at Wargrave on Thames, has a double
sided sign painted by two R. A.'s. Goring on* Thames haa a sign from the
brush of Marcus Stone, R. A There
are signs by Walter Crane and Caton
Woodvlile at Grayshott and Flttle-
worth. Hogarth painted a number of
signs for friendly publicans.

pened. The usual whiskeys and
beers were frequent, but he also noticed that a number of men asked
for egg in milk and egg in sherry.
"You sell a lot of eggs here," he ob
served to the bartender. "You bet
we do," answered the man behind.
"Hundreds of men drink eggs only.
There are several men who come in
here that order egg in beer. How
they get away with that awful mess
I cannot understand, but they drink
it down as though they liked it. One
man that comes here every day has
them all Bkinned. He always takes

An Elaborately Prepared Crime.
This story of an elaborately prepared crime waa told by Sir Robert
Anderson of Scotland Yard, London.
A criminal marked a millionaire as
his quarry and rented a bedroom near
the railway station from which the
rich man took the train for town.
Well dressed and well groomed, he
took his seat in the same compartment, attracting notice only by his
apparent desire to remain unnoticed
while he dealt with the papers he
carried in a stylish handbag. One
morning after a few such journeys
he gave vent to his annoyance at
having forgotten his keys. A stranger
sitting in the opposite corner politely
offered him hia bunch in the hope
that he would find on it a key to
open the bag. But none of them
would fit the lock. At the suggestion
of the stranger, who, of course, was
an accomplice, the millionaire then
produced his bunch of keys, and a
few seconds sufficed to enable the
thief to take a wax impression of the
key of the rich man's safe. A few
weeks later the safe was rifled, and
before the crime was discovered the
chief was across the channel with
his booty.
Why He Hositated.
Why does this man stand upon the
pavement trembling with terror,
afraid to enter his own home?
Listen and I will tell you:
This afternoon at 3 o'clock he received a letter from his bank asking
him to step around and pay a note
that was due. He scribbled the following answer upon a slip of paper:
"Can't possibly do it. Got to meet
another little thing this afternoon that
won't be put off."
About the same time a messenger
boy brought him a note from his wife
asking him to meet her at his office
at 4 to go with her to the dentist's.
Of course he got the answers mixed,
and he Is wondering whether he had
better attempt an explanation or set
out for Australia.���Strand Magazine.
Full Satisfaction.
A musician and a young banker
were dining at a continental restaurant, and a dispute ran high between
them. At last the musician, a music
hall "star," sprang up and pulled out
a card, which the banker at once ac
cepted and put in his pocket. Two
dayB later they met in a public park.
At once the musician exclaimed:
"Sir, you have not yet given me
satisfaction I"
"That I have, and to the fullest extent," was the cool anawer. "Yon

"Boys," be said, "the police found
some clothes down on the river bank
this morning. It looks like a boy bad

come up to the fire station and look at
tbe clothes, Maybe you can tell me who

A Marvellous and Triumphant Record
of Victory Over Disease.
No medicine has ever effected as large
i number of wonderful and almost marvellous cures as Psychine. It has had one
continuous record of victories over diseases of the throat, chest, lungs and stomach.
Where doctors have pronounced cases
Incurable from consumption and other
wasting diseases Psychine steps in and
rescues numbeiless people even from the
very verge of the grave. Coughs, Colds,
Catarrh, Bronchitis, Chills, Night Sweats,
La Grippe, Pneumonia, and other like
troubles, all of which are forerunners of
Consumption, yield quickly to the curative powers of Psychine.
Mrs. Campbell, one of the many cored,
makes the following statement:
I cannot refrain from telling all who suffer
of my romarkable recovery with Psychine. In
April, 1S03,1 caught a heavy cold which settled
on my lungs and gradually led to consumption,

Sentinienl   of   tbe   Orient   About   the
Fruit  of Destiny.
Concerning tbe rich fruit of the lotus,
which grew luxuriantly In the Nile,
many charm ing legends bave been told
It was believed that It was so delightful thufcthose who ate of It would never leave the spot where It grew, but
for It would abandon home and friends
to spend tlieir lives In a dream of serene delight. Homer, In the Odyssey,
mentions the lotus eaters who lived
ou the northern coast of Africa and
records tbelr attempts to detain the
followers of Ulysses by giving them
tbe fruits of tbe lotus to eat, so thai
they should never wish to leave the
spot where It grew.
Tbe same poetical Idea Is known te
tlie Arabs, who call It the "fruit of
destiny," which is to be eaten In Para
dlse, and It Is on this foundation that
Tennyson built his charming poem ol
the "Lotus Eaters." This mythical
lotus has been identified by several
botanists with that indigenous to Tu.
nls, which Is a thorny shrub, with ber
rles the size of an olive.
Mungo Park found a species of lotui
In Central Africa bearing berries of ���
delicious taste, which on being dried
and pounded made wholesome am]
pleasant bread. The lotus fruit found.
In Tunis has a stimulating, almost Intoxicating, effect, and it Is tberefon
probable that this plant furnished thi
foundation of tbe ancient legends.

$2.25 a month. To equip tbe expedl

If a fairy bad ever offered to grant

was feeding on the ground and picked
him up In my band. He did not seem
a bit alarmed, and when a few minutes later I set him down be continued

"I sent my little girl," writes a correspondent, "to the butcher's with 50
cents to buy some steak. Sbe came
home 10 cents short In change and was
sent back for the missing coin. Presently the butcher's boy called with the
dime and explained that his employer
had found out his mistake, although
they had seen nothing of my little

felt anxious until I heard her singing
merrily In the garden. 'Did you go
